Simulation of a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) processusing HYSYS

Including an abundant supply of natural gas, British Columbia will become a leading contender for liquefied natural gas (LNG) growth and export, which can support economic activity in the province for over 150 years. Simulation of LNG plants is critical since the investigation and review of critical plant design elements will significantly improve plant performance and the safety and reliability of plant operations. Furthermore, design changes can be implemented at a low cost providing significant savings during a plant’s lifetime. In addition, process simulator is required to understand actual plant transients and dynamics, to examine and verify control schemes, and to review plant procedures, to examine process upsets, including process startups and shutdowns. In this research project, the intern is focused on simulation of the BC LNG plant executed by Amec Foster Wheeler Company to provide a sustainable solution during Front End Engineering Design (FEED) of a LNG project, which respects environmental limits while fulfilling social and economical needs.
